Died at Millbrig

   The death of Mrs. George Zeal occurred very suddenly at her home near Millbrig on Wednesday.  Apoplexy was the cause of this most estimable woman's demise.   Her husband died several years ago and she is survived by a number of children who deeply lament the loss of a most excellent and dearly loved mother.  

   The funeral obsequies to the memory of the late Mrs. George Zeal were held at the family residence near Millbrig at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon and interment was made in the cemetery there.   A large number of Galena friends of the family attended.   Mrs. Zeal had seen sixty-one years of life and had always enjoyed good health until within a few hours of her death.   She was taken suddenly ill from paralysis of the brain while out feeding the chickens Wednesday morning and before supper time she had pass away.
